Welcome to Friday Photo Spots. This post is part of a weekly series, Friday Photo Spots, which showcases some of the best photos of the week from around the photo blog community. I did my best to add a little categorization this week, but this feature is still a work in progress. Be sure to leave any feedback or suggestions you might have in the comments and be sure to subscribe via RSS or email so you don’t miss any future posts!
- Tobias George has a great UrbEx image going on this week featuring lots of contrasts of shapes, colors and textures.
- Michael Murphy is a UK photographer that takes UrbEx to a whole new level. This is a must see if you haven’t checked out his site yet.
- Mike Criswell aka Theatrewiz shows off some Steeler pride this week. I can’t say much for his taste in football teams( ), but these two images here and here are great!
- Scott Frederick always has school in session when it comes to UrbEx. If you’re looking for some great examples of UrbEx photography with some awesome street art and graffiti, you should definitely check out Scott’s Site
- Barbara Youngleson has the most featured the most awesome photo of a lion I’ve seen in a long time. She took this shot when she was in South Africa and it’s definitely a must see!
- Kristi Hines aka, my wife, posted this image of some ducklings on her blog that are apparently “cute.” Note: I do not under normal circumstances condone the use of the word “cute,” but the photos are definitely worth a visit. Personally, I think of the title of the post as “What the Duck?”. Check it out, there’s even a video!
- Jim Nix posted a great picture of one of those funny english guard dudes with the hats (yes I know they’re called the Queen’s Guards). If they have to stay perfectly still, I wonder if I could pose Captain Jack Sock on his shoulder for a photo?
- Mark Garbowski featured this happy looking gentleman in his post this week. I have to say that this one made me laugh .
- Pete Talke has an awesome baseball shot using some great textures. If you’re a fan of textures in photography you should definitely give this a look.
- Heath O’Fee – speaking of textures, Heath has been doing some experimenting this week. If you haven’t caught this one already you should definitely give it a look.
- Chris Kenison has so many great shots on his site it was hard to choose. I decided to share with you his photo of this cool looking barn. Check it out!
- Keith Moyer posted a photo of this beautiful church. I’m not sure where this was taken, all I know is that it’s from a tiny town.
- Mike Olbinski, Ryan Young, Scott Wood and Chris Frailey share the “photography from awesome places I want to visit” award this week with their pictures from The Grand Falls in Arizona. Although now that I think about it, I might have been here sometime around the age of 5… I remember throwing rocks into water that looked like this. Hmm, I’ll have to check with my dad on this one. Anyway, It’s really cool to see the differences in lighting and processing on each of their shots – check them out!
Animals and Wildlife
- Jesse Pafundi gets the sunset photo of the week award with this 8 minute exposure! I thought of making a list of things that don’t last 8 minutes but I can see that going horrible wrong…
I took this shot last weekend during our one day thunderstorm which turned the whether wacky. I went to this baseball park hoping the clouds would break open for sunset but no so luck. Instead, I settled on this one which I thought had a nice feel to it. It reminds me of my baseball days. Let me know what you think and don’t forget to check back this weekend for Sock Monkey Sundays !
Once again, I want to thank you everyone for supporting my blog. I hope that you found these bloggers and their photos interesting. I did my best this week to include a few more photographers as well as adding some categorization. Any feedback and suggestions you have would be very welcome.
